We all know what it feels like to be over-tired. That spacey “I just can’t stay awake and my patience is wearing thin” feeling. Or those glassy-eyed “I must be coming down with something” or “I just don’t have the energy” feelings.
Without proper rest, our bodies can’t thrive. Our brains don’t have the energy to cope with difficult decisions or complicated projects. Our sympathetic nervous system goes into overdrive, putting stress upon our hearts. Our immune system takes a punch and we’re often left feeling anxious or negative.
